Bristlecone Pines August 2016

While on our annual summer vacation we decided to head back to see the Schulman Grove in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest.  This was the location of the world’s oldest tree(s), with one of them being over 5000 years old.  We visited the new visitor center and learned a lot about these amazing trees.  Then we hiked the “Methuselah Walk” trail which took us down to the site where the oldest trees of all were living.  It was humbling to be in the presence of living things one hundred times older than yourself.
